  • I do not think that I am an old, boring person

    "What? You still play Doom and Wolfenstein 3D? What is wrong with you? Get with the times!"

    ^

    There were times when I had to put up with that type of behavior.

    Some people think that if someone still plays PC games from the 90's, he or she should be sitting on a rocking chair.

    But I am aware of the changes that have occurred in the world of gaming. I am aware of SOCOM 3: U.S. Navy SEALs, SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Combined Assault, and Halo 3. I know that there is a Taco Bell event where one could win a Playstation 4 before it is released.

    Meanwhile, Doom and Quake are always changing and evolving, because new mods are being released frequently. So I pay attention to the media and I download new mods. So, I have managed to keep up with the times.

    Stop giving a shit about what most people say.

    It's a trait of modern consumerism, if you don't always buy the latest gizmo you're supposedly weird.

    Nowadays most things are designed to quickly become obsolete. People supposedly "need" a new car every few years, a new TV, a new kitchen, a new iphone, whatever. Why is this? Because it generates income and profit.

    It's artificial. No one actually "needs" a new game console. You can safely disregard that kind of brainwashing. Do what makes you happy.

    If you'd like a PS4 or a new COD game, go for it, but if you're happy with DOOM, more power to you!

          I still play Doom and Quake a lot. I also play some newer ones as well (e.g. Skyrim, GTA5, DIRT 3). If I had decent latency to the US I would still be playing Quake online.

          Nothing wrong with that. Games (especially shooters) didn't really get much better in terms of gameplay. It's a nostalgia thing for me as well. I miss the old days when public servers were constantly full. Maybe I am just an old man trying to relive the past. Who knows.

          Doom and Quake may have had a bigger impact on gaming (and technology in general) than any other. If anything you should feel proud and lucky to have been there when it all happened.

              I'm currently finishing Spear of Destiny on “I am Death Incarnate!"

              Fact is these games aren't TOO OLD. They are TOO FUN! I'd rather try to sneak around halls and rooms that are the same height everywhere, along with repetitive textures with Nazis just popping up and making me jump than some crappy linear new first-person shooter. Doom, Quake, Duke Nukem 3D, and a bunch of other shooters from the 90s had that "Here's the first level, have fun kid. Some monsters started where you spawned? Too bad." Now most games are all about a long introduction scene with constant interruptions, pointless cut scenes, and no sense of exploration. Too much hand holding. I honestly can't think of a recent new first person shooter that REALLY reeled me in. The last shooter that I actually made a big deal about was Half-Life 2.

              Me and my buddies actually still get together and play four-player Bomberman once a week on the SNES or Genesis. We actually play Quake II on the N64 as well (you can't duck for some reason). You can't beat the classics. Even music was much better in the 90s and before, along with most movies.

                  I just started to bother with modern multiplayer gaming. As fun as 64 player Conquest games in BF3/4 are, I won't hesitate to fire up Quake when I see games going on (and im not going to bed. Ugh,all the games are at night lately,late)

                    I haven't heard anything similar in a long time. The recent experiences I made when talking about older games were rather positive, to be honest.
                    On one occasion a university professor started talking to me about how he enjoyed the old Conter-Strike, after he saw me playing Q1 to pass time on a night shift
                    The worst thing I can be is the same as everybody else. I hate that.

                            I remade pac-man a long time ago and I still play my version frequently. So, it's kinda like I still play pac-man (kinda). I think I posted it here before but just for shitz & giggles here is my version

                            The file inside the zip is an exe but it doesn't install anything. Way back in the flashMX (6) days you could save flash projects as a standalone player. That's all it is, my flash project with an exe wrapper. The game is stupid but actually pretty addictive.

                            To my knowledge no one (including myself) has ever beat it. All you have to do is eat all ?510? dots. Actually if someone can beat this and tell me if the win screen works it would be great (take a screenshot). I already know about the "E" getting cut off in the lose screen, it is what it is.
